How much should it cost to fix a shock absorber in a front tire?

Updated July 19, 2017

Having a certified mechanic fix your vehicle is one of the most common methods for having a car repaired. On average, a mechanic charges £97 to £195 to replace front shock absorbers--this includes parts and labour. The price may differ slightly depending on your car's make, model and year.

Do It Yourself

Repairing your car yourself is a great way to save time and money. Replacing your front shocks is relatively inexpensive, with most shocks costing around £32 for a single shock absorber or £65 for two.

Bottom Line

If you have the mechanical know-how and ability to replace your own front shock absorbers, you can save a lot of money and time doing yourself. Otherwise, be ready to pay from £97 to £195 and wait a day or two for a mechanic to do it for you.
